UK sending 'half-trained' troops to Afghanistan, says report

This should give aid and comfort to the families and friends of these troops.
Britain is proposing to send up to 1,000 new army recruits to Afghanistan without full combat training due to a massive shortage in manpower, a leading UK daily reported Thursday.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least to learn the US is doing the same thing. They don't need no "full training". This is your uniform. This is your rifle. That is your troop plane. Write when you get a chance and keep your head down.

Why not? The US has sent mentally injured (PTSD) back in there. They need bodies. All the bodies they can get their hands on and they'll take any they can find or recruit.
